/ 10:57 PM October 19, 2017

Weezer has unveiled the latest track from its upcoming album, which, the band wrote, “like many cool Weezer songs has a sad message wrapped in a sunny package.”

Called “Happy Hour”, the track is indeed sunny, although it finds the band deviating from their usual sound.


In a note posted on Twitter, the band explained the story behind the song: “Sort of a companion piece to ‘Island in the Sun’ from 2001, but instead of being a pure fantasy about an escape, the guy in ‘Happy Hour’ is chained to reality, looking around for a break from the routine.”

The track was featured as a World Record on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show before being released worldwide. It is now available to stream or download via

“Happy Hour” is featured on the band’s upcoming album “Pacific Daydream” which is due out Oct. 27. JB
